Miss North Dakota Junior High Rodeo Queen – Bailey Grove
Bailey Kathryn Grove calls Ray, North Dakota home, and is the daughter of Aric and Jessica Grove and has two younger brothers, Clayton and Colton. Bailey is a seventh grader at Ray Public School.
Bailey has grown up around the western lifestyle in rural North Dakota and has a strong appreciation for cattle and horses. Miss Grove’s love of horses led her to youth rodeos and youth ranch rodeos. She competes in barrels, pole bending, goat tying and breakaway in the ND Junior High Rodeo Division. Bailey also enjoys playing basketball, volleyball and softball, is active in 4-H, band, choir and is proud to be on the honor roll.
Becoming the 2017 Miss ND Junior High Rodeo Queen is a dream come true for Bailey. She wants to be a role model for young girls just like rodeo queens were for her. One of her favorite sayings is “Get back in the saddle!” Which describes her determination and belief that no matter what happens in life, don’t stop trying to achieve your goals. Step into that stirrup, pull yourself up back into the saddle and ride off to your dreams!
